Former Ayer Hangat rep Mohd Rawi quits Umno



Mohd Rawi Abd Hamid, the former state assemblyman for Ayer Hangat, today announced his resignation from Umno, along with 30 Langkawi divisional and branch leaders.

Mohd Rawi, 51, told a press conference that after taking into account the development in the political landscape, he wants to assist the Pakatan Harapan government in its efforts to prosper the country.

He said he resigned from Umno with the intention of joining another party, not because of any offer of money or position.

He also said that he will make an announcement in two weeks which Harapan component party he will join. The others will make their decisions later, he added.

Mohd Rawi, who is a former Kedah state executive councillor, claimed that over 50 percent of the 17,000 Umno members in Langkawi have resigned but said he could not confirm the actual number.
